The respiratory department of Capital and Coast District
Health Board is expanding and applications are invited for the position of
Respiratory specialist (Senior Medical Officer / Consultant) with an interest
in sleep medicine. The successful applicant(s) will join the existing team of 7
respiratory specialists, based at Wellington Hospital, in providing tertiary
services to the lower north island region of New Zealand and secondary services
to the greater Wellington region.
The role of the respiratory specialist is to provide diagnosis and management of people referred with respiratory disorders, provide training and take part in teaching of students and junior medical staff and other health groups and to provide services within the available resources.
